A Hidden Peace

Un lieu de paix caché

In the quiet folds of morning,
 soft sun breathes in.
Peace like water surrounds

I make tea
and walk through the roses

slowly tending to the keeping of home 

and many hours working in my art studio 
Gentle brush strokes
Artiste doux coups de pinceau 

A hidden peace I find in the tous les jours.  A slow, calm life.
In  the quiet recesses of the day is peace. 
dans les recoins calmes de la journée est la paix  

paix quotidienne
everyday peace

washed by the sea,

Gentillesse Roses

  I began painting these pale wash of roses in the quiet depths of Winter. 

 Beginning on pristine french papier then venturing on to fine art canvas. Each surface creates its own variation of sheer and opaque flowers, so I am unsure of which I prefer. Currently I am favoring 100 % cotton canvas panels. 

 I have just begun listing a few in my tiny studio Shop. Nearly 20 paintings completed thus far with one large canvas remaining on the easel unfinished because the faint roses hold a beauty I haven’t the heart to disturb yet.

    Piles of empty canvas and bundles of french linen papier gather in the corners of my studio waiting their turn. I will continue to paint these ever so pale white roses into and through the Summer months.  Letting their quiet gentillesse flow from the sacré chambers within.  I will continue to list paintings in my Shop as I go.  

There are also tiny flower fairy statuettes Fée des fleurs that I have hand painted in a french style, new in the Shop for Spring and Summer. Always always inspired by Monet.

Wash Of Roses

In my art studio

Unfinished roses in the faintest wash.   I continue painting Seawashed Roses on 100% cotton canvas.  Flowing from a quiet, hidden place.

Pale Wash Of Roses

The palest of white roses floating in quietness

Roses calme de blanc

A pale wash of roses drying in my art studio. 
 I have been painting the palest of white roses on French linen papier.  These are so faint and very difficult to capture in photograph.  The natural lighting in the studio is also dim from days of rain with grey skies.  The linen papier is so lovely made in France since 1557.  Painting these roses has given my soul a calm that awakens me to become more quiet, unseen, and hidden in the petals.
